Getting the smell out of your cushions is the tough part.

Re: Well, we did it...

Just checked out the pics. I wonder who did your canvas, it really looks nice. Definitely a quality job.

And it looks like the previous owner really took care of her - which is a HUGE plus.

Re: Florida is at it again

This whole things sounds a bit like a Dave Barry column.

Are there any news outlets that might do a story on how one puffed up rich guy has the legislature screwing with Florida tourism just to...

Re: Time Expectaions

Make sure you budget time for projects before you set sail, and make sure you allow for things breaking on the trip home - because something will break :D

Re: Boat porn

That is one stunning yacht !

The Yachting Channel on Roku did a story on her a while back discussing her build with a lot of video of her under sail.

She's just beautiful but definitely a bit...

Maybe Not a Big Deal

"a foot above the water line"

My Catalina 22 had a bow eye in just about that spot; and the 25 is a also trailerable boat.

Maybe the bow eye got buggered up and a previous owner did a half...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

Which is a bit different from what my manual says. Different engines different answers. It shouldn't be a surprise that one size doesn't fit all.

RTFM - Read the Friggin' Manual :laugher

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

In a way we're saying the same thing.

Typical operation would include running the engine normally after idling. Lets say you charge your batteries once or twice at anchor. Running your motor to...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

But when I look at the manual for my engine it only mentions glazing the bores as a potential problem during...

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

Most times when I hear of a diesel failure it's been overheated or ingested water.

Change your oil, belt, impeller, filters and keep the fuel clean and she should grumble along for many years. It...

Re: Florida is at it again

Florida spends BIG dollars on promoting tourism (Visit Florida). I think the effort is run out of the governors office.

Has anyone tried contacting the tourism board and showing them what a huge...

I don't want to take this thread down an off topic road, but citizens united (talk about a misnomer) basically did legalize bribery.

Re: Tanker goes out of control on Delaware River

Huh?

If there had been small craft on the river they may well have steered into the tankers path, expecting him to turn and stay in the channel.

A small sailboat just wouldn't have had enough...

Rick,
We kept our Catalina 22 at G. Winters in Riverside for a couple of years. The river is where we learned to sail and I have good memories of sailing there. And you're right having your boat...

Re: Are These 2 New Yachts the Future of Sailing ?

I think you're right. A friend of mine has been toying with the idea of pulling his diesel and replacing it with an electric drive for a couple of years. This winter he decided the technology was...
